Odd Future Debut Short Film “Sam Is Dead”

+

 

It’s basically internet law that once Odd Future puts something online, we’re all required to write about it. And so it goes with this new premiere from the sprawling hip-hop collective, branching out into short films now in their never-ending quest to conquer all media. The film, Sam Is Dead, is directed by Wolf Haley, and stars most of the recognizable members of the crew, including Domo Genesis, and Tyler, the Creator among others. It finds them mired in the shit in a jungle war setting. You’ll never guess what happens in the shocking conclusion! Guns are wielded, death is right around the corner, tie-dyed t-shirts are worn stylishly! The soundtrack features a hot Tyler beat, however, and some of his characteristically nimble wordplay and precocious subject matter. “I’m still a kid in my heart so I have a problem maturing, but it will come from experience and shit I see touring,” he rhymes. Here’s to hoping that maturity never actually comes.
